Bucatini with mushrooms and sausage- Methods!

step 1-
Tip out the dried porcini mushrooms into a large pot or pan with 600ml of boiling water from the kettle. Set over a low heat and simmer the pot for 10 to 15 mins until slightly reduced to make an intense mushroom stock. Heat the the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and then squeeze the sausage meat from the skins into the pan and fry for 5-8 mins. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon as it cooks, and leave it to cook until lightly brown.

Step 2-
In the mean time, whilst the sausage meat is cooking away, pop a large pot filled with water and a pinch of salt onto the heat and bring it to boil. Once it is boiling, drop in the bucatini and move it around using tongs to prevent it sticking together. Cook this for roughly 9 minutes until it starts to go soft.

Step 3
Meanwhile, add the garlic and chilli flakes to the sausage meat and fry for 1 min before pouring in the wine, cook this for 5 mins more until the wine has reduced, then tip in the rehydrated mushrooms and the stock (you should have about roughly 350ml). Season with salt and black pepper, then bring to a simmer.


Step 4-
Almost there! This is the second last step and then your mouth will be watering with even just the smell of this amazing bucatini with mushrooms and sausage! After roughly 9 mins, use the tongs to move the bucatini directly from its cooking water into the mushroom sauce. The mixture may appear liquidly and watery at first.

Step 5-
Almost there! This is the last step! the trick is to finish cooking the bucatini by simmering it in the broth it will soak it all up and take on the earthy flavour. Keep on moving and stirring the pasta in the broth using the tongs for 3 mins, or until most of the water has been absorbed. Stir in the cream, a grating of nutmeg and the parsley. Stir well, taste for seasoning and serve topped with lots of parmesan.
